ON DIVINE LOVE AND THE PURPOSE OE LIFE . . .
RDINARY PERSONS are caught up in the Universe and its allurements, though the entire Universe is nothing but a shadow of GOD or Truth. The Masters are always immersed in the joy of Union with GOD, and can never be caught up in the mazes of the illusory Universe. Just as ordinarily we do not pay any attention to the shadows, so the Masters do not pay any attention to the Universe except to divert the attention of humanity from the Shadow to the Substance. The purpose of life is to realize our oneness with the Infinite; this can be achieved through love for GOD.
Divine Love makes us be true to ourselves and to others. It makes us live honestly, comprehending that GOD Himself is Infinite Honesty. Divine Love is the solution to all our difficulties and problems. It frees us from every kind of binding. It makes us speak truly, think truly and act truly. It makes us feel one with the whole Universe. Divine Love purifies our hearts and glorifies our being. I give you my love and blessings.
ON HONESTY . . .
HAVE LATELY been laying stress on honesty. If we love GOD honestly we become one with Him. Never before has dishonesty and hypocrisy prevailed in this world as today. If the least hypocrisy creeps into our thoughts, words and deeds, GOD who is the innermost Self in us all, keeps Himself hidden.
Hypocrisy is a million-headed cobra. There are today so many so-called saints who, even though they tell people to be honest and not to be hypocrites, are yet themselves deep in dishonesty.
I say with Divine Authority that I am in you all, and if you honestly love GOD, you will find Him everywhere. And remember, if you cannot love GOD and cannot lead saintly lives, then at least do not make a show of it, because the worst scoundrels are better than hypocritical saints.
